One of the most popular tourist resorts in the Algarve, Lagos has it all. The beautiful beaches, pretty old town, modern new town and vibrant nightlife.

Explore the beautiful grottos along the Lagos coastline at Ponta da Piedade by kayak, brave the long flight of steps down to secluded Camilo beach, relax on a sunlounger at Meia Praia with its soft powdery sands and azure blue sea and enjoy the view from the Ponta da Piedade lighthouse.

Wine lovers will enjoy a visit to the Monte da Casteleja organic winery, where you can enjoy a tour and sample some of the fabulous wines produced here. Children and animal lovers alike will enjoy a trip to the Parque Zoologico de Lagos. And the wax museum is another great place to visit while you're here, along with the numerous castles and forts that line this stretch of the Portuguese coast.

You'll find plenty of restaurants here to whet your appetite, from local cuisine to international fayre and of course the nighlife here is unrivalled on the Algarve.
